I knew not every bint in Sunnyhell High could be a cheerleader This little hardcase looks like just the thing to take home to Dru. If we get lucky, it might even turn out she knows the Slayer
Yeah, thats right, luv. Both those gits are goners and Im takin you home with me.
Feisty thing. My kind of bird foul-mouthed and tough as nails. The bints got more sense than youd think, though. One growl after Id taken care of her two friends and she froze. She knew Id have her before she got ten feet. Looked like she mightve been thinking about giving me a fight of it till I knocked that idea out of her. Nothing like a good clip on the chin to make it clear whos in charge. This one should keep Dru happy for at least a couple of hours.
Wakey, wakey, spitfire. Time to meet a real vampire.
Still feeling feisty can hear that heart pounding, but she's looking at Dru like she wants to make a fight of it. Best hang close till Dru gets her properly thralled
Have at it, luv. Enjoy her while you can. Just dont do too much visible damage. Ive got plans for her later.
Ill give the new minion credit. She was ready to take us both on when she rose. Didnt do her any good, o course, but was fun for a bit. She woke up all hungry and full of fight. Took to feeding like a duck to water.
Didnt argue when I set her on the Slayer, either. Maybe she doesnt know about the Slayer they probably dont run in the same circles. Cant see Heavens Chosen One staggering out of a dive like the one I found Sheila in. Huh, what do you know? Turns out she does know her. Calls her Buffy; was even supposed to be there tonight to help out with biscuits or whatever. Maybe this plan is going to work out even better than Id hoped.
Lets go, pet. Got someone I want you to talk to for me.
Gave her the axe and told her to have at it. I tried to explain a bit about what a Slayer is, but Miss Tough-girl wasnt impressed. Laughed at me when I said shed have to be quick and clever to get one up on this girl. Reckon shes never seen Buffy in action. If she gets lucky, good on her. If not, Ill let her learn the hard way. Not as if shes likely to have time to make much use of the lesson
Im guessing it didnt work out for her, being as how the Slayer was all perky and undamaged when she finally showed up. And how the hell did her mother get hands on that axe? If the Slayer didnt dust that bloody girl, Ill do her myself just for that mistake. Stupid bint better hope shes dust before I find her

So, Sheila, huh? Didnt see that one coming. Gilesll be all You should have been able to sense a vampire, Buffy. I guess Spike sent her after me. Like some fledgling minion was going to get the drop on me which, okay, she kinda did, but Sorry, Slayer-killer, its not gonna be that easy. Not going down to some scuzzy minion you just turned yesterday.
If Id had the time, Idve stopped to giggle at the expression on Sheilas face when I clocked her with her own axe. Guess Spike didnt tell her what he was siccing her on. Pretty funny in an I-should-probably-chase-her-down-and-stake-her kind of way.
I probably shouldnt have let her run away, but its Sheila. Shell do something stupid sooner or later, and Ill get her then. Spike and his experienced minions have to be the priority tonight. Ill run into her at the Bronze or something and take care of her then. She hasnt been a vamp long enough to learn anything. Shell be easy to find. Tonight Ive got old-vampire ass to kick

Ohmygod, ohmygod, ohmygod! Those are the ugliest people Ive ever seen! If thats what PCP does to your face, all I can say is Im glad I swore to never do drugs Oh, who am I kidding? Those are vampires. The schools been attacked by vampires. Were all gonna die.
Whats ? Oh God, theyve found me. Heres a Oh, its okay. Its that bad-ass chick that was helping Buffy with the refreshments. I guess its okay if she hides in here with me. Might as well be friendly and talk to her. She doesnt look like the type to vote for Homecoming Queen, but you never know
She didnt buy the PCP thing, either. No reason to if youve lived in Sunnydale all your life. You learn stuff. Guess were in this togeth Crap! Shes one of them! Well, thats that. Maybe shell make me a vampire, too. I wonder what its like?
If I wasnt about to pee my pants, Id be laughing at the expression on her face and okay, yeah, shes still zeroing in on my neck, but she didnt bite me yet. I think she might even answer my question.
I dont have to follow anybodys rules, I dont have to take anybodys crap
But youve always been like that. (Just because we arent besties, doesnt mean I dont know who she is. She got into a fight in the middle of Algebra class, for cripes sake.)
Hah! Confused her again. Shes trying to act all cool about it, but I could see she had to think for a second. And Im still alive and shes still talking
Okay, sure, I acted that way. And yeah, I really was tough. But this is different. Im not afraid of anything. Anything.
That sounds pretty awesome, actually. Maybe Sheila doesnt know about Buffy?
(Hey, good for me. I remembered her name. Cordy says its always important to know the names of the little people you want on your side.)
Lots of people dont. Know about Buffy, that is. I wouldnt if Cordy hadnt slipped one night when she was drinking shots of something gross. I dont know exactly what a Slayer is, but I do know that when I said Buffys name, Sheila got real, real quiet for a few seconds. So, maybe she does know.
Keep her talking. They say thats the key to hostage situations. Ask her more questions
I guess our little bonding moment is over. Who knows? Maybe Ill like oh yeah. Thats just Wow. Who knew? Hey, and bonus, Im not dead, and Sheilas not acting like she wants me dead. Wants to know where I live. Might as well tell her. Its not like she can get in if I dont want her to I know how to protect myself against vamps. Im not as stupid as people think I am.
So, Sheila and me. I guess it didnt hurt that my idea worked. I wasnt sure shed go for it, but she really isnt afraid of anything.
Except Buffy. She thinks I havent noticed how she freezes whenever I mention Buffy, but I notice.
Things got a little hairy when the scuzball roomie turned out to be another vampire, but my Sheila knew what to do. We kicked his ass for real. By which I mean, she did. But I was the distraction. And she could have just let him kill me. I mean, she had the idea, she didnt really need me to Anyway, so all we had to do was set the scene holy water burns and all. That part grossed me out, but I guess it was worth it. It worked to get Kyle off her back. And she was even nice to me for a few minutes.
Friends. Lovers even if she doesnt want to admit it. Theres got to be a reason she keeps coming back to drink without killing me. She says she likes to talk to me, but I know what keeps her coming back. She likes me. I mean, of course she does. Its not like if she wasnt a vamp, Id be hanging out with her. So its a good deal for both of us. She gets to rub up against a little class, and I get to feel like Oh yeah. Like that. Again
She almost admitted she likes me when she found out how long Id waited around for her. Covered for it pretty well with her Get some sleep, eat something, then sleep some more. Ill come over and slap you silly when I think youre strong enough to appreciate it. But I know her. That was her way of saying she was sorry for making me cry. She loves me. I hope she doesnt really do anything really painful to me when she comes back. I dont think I was serious about that. I dont think so really probably not.

This is going to work out. For a while, anyway. Ive got Tana on tap when I need want! when I want her and she actually has a good idea every once in a while. Knew just how to handle Kyle, Ill give her that. Theres a devious mind underneath that shiny hair. Not that Im not going to kill her eventually, but why spoil a good thing?
Finally got her to understand that the Bronze is off limits without actually having to spell out that I dont ever want to see Buffy again. Or, worse yet, be seen by her. I heard she fought Spike to a stand-still. Yeah, Miss Buffy Summers youre not what you seemed to be. Not by a long shot. Should have listened better when Spike was trying to tell me about Slayers. Im tough, but Im not stupid. If I keep my head down, and Tana keeps her mouth shut, theres no reason why I cant stay in the same town with a Slayer. Its not like Im leaving bodies everywhere. Yeah, I can make this work
